Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:210 (w3c-libwww).



Sam Varshavchik discovered the HTBoundary_put_block function in HTBound.c for
W3C libwww (w3c-libwww) permits remote servers to cause a denial of service
(segmentation fault) via a crafted multipart/byteranges MIME message that
triggers an out-of-bounds read. The updated packages have been patched to
address this issue.
